Ja matta = see you later in Japanese
That’s right, I’ve been watching anime with Chase and suddenly my interest in the Japanese language has come back! I kind of wish I’d finished my Japanese degree, but alas, it was not to be.
Japanese aside, I went a little crazy yesterday at saying sayonara to Spring Break.
The morning started off controlled enough. I was up early and eating a breakfast of Weetabix, 1/2 banana, toasted walnuts, and craisins, before heading to the hospital to delivery trays. I put in my two-weeks notice to them on Friday. I just don’t feel like I get anything out of the experience and am going to get plenty of clinical hours now that I’m working for Carole.
Once my hour was up, I gingerly walked the 2 miles to work. However, it wasn’t gingerly enough. My injured foot was roaring in pain once I got over there. I probably should have taken the bus.
To wake myself up and add a little warmth into my cold and hurting body, I grabbed a doppio ristretto espresso with 3” hot water, one raw sugar, and a splash of half and half. Honestly I’m starting to prefer my own espresso creations at home more now!
Work was surprisingly busy and having been gone over an entire week I felt like I was continuously trying to catch up. By 11am my stomach was crying for food. O.o I was too busy to listen though and it just had to wait until noon.Then I sat down and devoured a very soggy taco salad with chips and a tangelo. It did the job.
Once I stumbled home again (at least it’s shorter on the return because my coworker, Jaycee, drops me off a little over half way there), I knew going to the gym was out. I immediately made myself a bucket of hot water with Epson salt and stuck my aching foot in.
Once Chase got home the goodbye party for Spring Break ensued. I drank way too many grapefruit juice, gin, and lavender liquor drinks and had a dinner of wheat thins (which I was happy to see are now 100% whole grain at least) and pepper jack cheese. Probably 3x what is pictured!
Hilarity ensued including trying to make Vincent look like he wears glasses.
Later, I tried a purchase that’s been sitting in my freezer. Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt: Liz Lemon flavor! Lemon and blueberry lavender! Meh, it sounds better than it tastes so I just skimmed a little off the top and put it away.
I did end up snacking on some unpictured tortilla chips and Reese’s pieces later.
Oh boy am I feeling it this morning. I feel ready to start this new quarter and give it my all though too! Goodbye, Spring Break!
